T2nr Industrial Units, totalling over 50,000 square feet of usable space. The project is a speculative build for a developer who is looking to either sell or let. Unit 1 will have office space on two floors and we are providing the fit out to the first floor, with the ground floor being “shell only” for future fit out by the occupier.

Each unit has a large service yard capable of accommodating sufficient numbers of HGVs for a unit of that size, with a full turning circle and HGV parking. Access is provided by 5m high sectional doors to accept large vehicles and unit 1 has the additional feature of a dock leveller to allow direct forklift loading into the back of a vehicle.

The construction consists of a steel portal frame with cold-rolled cladding rails, finished with a built up cladding and roofing system. There will be a power floated concrete floor slab to each unit and the external yards will consist of air-entrained concrete with a brushed finish.

The offices will be fitted out to a good standard with suspended ceilings, VRF air conditioning and heat recovery ventilation.

Each unit utilises siphonic rainwater drainage and attenuation tanks with petrol interceptors for storm water control.
